Radiator City?

You could compare Kvinesdal to Radiator City from the Disney movie Cars. There used to be a main road that went through the town, but a highway was built which by-passed it. The difference in Kvinesdal is that the local people celebrated the new highway and now work together to make Kvinesdal a great place to visit. So, if you visit one attraction in Kvinesdal, you will also receive information on other great attractions and activities in the region.
